At least 25 BJP leaders have resigned across the northeast in the past few days, leaving the party in disarray. Today, at least 18 BJP leaders in Arunachal Pradesh, including party general secretary Jarpum Gambin, Home Minister Kumar Waii and Tourism Minister Jarkar Gamlin and six legislators resigned from the party after being denied tickets for the assembly polls. They have joined Conrad Sangma's National Peoples party (NPP), a key BJP ally which has decided to go solo across northeast. The BJP has finalised only two alliances in the region, even as many of its regional allies, including Conrad Sangma's NPP and Sikkim's SKM, have dumped the party for the Lok Sabha polls.
